The Teleporting Blues

“The Mexican will always be
a caged animal,

though he tries to be good
it is not within his nature,

he cheats, he scams,
he lies,

and this comes easy to him.
He excels in it,

he glories in it,
ay dios mio,

in this the
is unsurpassed.”

Every damn time he teleported,
these kinds of thoughts

filled the mind of Rey Urias
and always left him

uneasy, afraid of himself.
Somehow or other,

Rey always convinced himself
that he was a good Mexican,

contrary to
the evidence.
